Valedictory Report

“Spending my sabbatical amongst this group of smart and particularly social researchers made me think about the degree to which research is a social endeavor. A research culture that encourages, sharing, discussion of generation of ideas while leveraging a collective memory to filter out relevant papers or good leads, is a key to success. Many corporations have understood the value of nurturing both individual creativity and a culture of openness to enhance productivity. During my visit, I was struck with the importance that leveraging and nurturing research as a social activity will be to IMDEA Network’s long-term success. I think I can recognize a social research culture when I see one, but I’m not sure I could synthesize one given unlimited resources. One ingredient is likely allowing time for socializing in cozy corridors, coffee breaks and good food — these are in abundance in Madrid”.
